# Centrifugal & Centripetal Forces (from tangential speed)

Centrifugal and Centripetal Forces Calculator from tangential speed, mass and radius.

**Enter 'x' in the field to be calculated.**

Do not confuse these two forces.

The centrifugal and centripetal forces have the same intensity which is calculated by this calculator. However, they are different. On the one hand, they are opposite (as vectors). On the other hand, their natures are different. For example, centrifugal force is apparent (fictitious) while centripetal force is real.

This tool is a calculator of Centrifugal and Centripetal Forces from tangential speed.

If you know the angular speed instead of the tangential speed then, you may use this calculator : Centrifugal and Centripetal Forces from angular speed.

`F = (m*v^2)/R`

F : Centrifugal or Centripetal Forces in Newton (N)

m : object mass in kilogram (kg)

v : tangential speed in meter per second (m/s)

R : radius or distance of the object from the center of rotation in meter (m)
